Description of problem:

On Acer Travelmate 230 any access to /proc/apm is causing this:

Code:  Bad EIP value.

Adding 'apm=broken-psr' to a boot command prevents oops but not much
of APM seems to work afterwards.

00b0: says your bios oopsed...... ungood but nothing the kernel can fix really.

Can you get a copy of dmidecode, run it on the system and email me the results ?
